Whole Life Cost

The emergence of facilities management and Public Private Partnerships (PPP) is making it vital for occupiers, developers and construction teams to consider how much a building will cost to occupy. This can be as much as 10 times the capital cost over a 25-year lifespan.

Life Cycle costing is intensifying within the construction industry. Its growing recognition is multi-faceted but implications from the Treasury Report on Cost Benefit Analysis, client requirements for total cost throughout a building’s life and the ever-increasing influence of BIM are significant factors.

By having a better understanding of ongoing overheads, along with future environmental and social costs of their assets allows a business to plan more accurately and have a better appreciation of their impact on the world around them.

Our people led by Director Lawrie Saegers have an in-depth understanding of all aspects of lifecycle costing, helping you effectively plan your asset’s future.
